Burnt Engine Oil Smell

2074 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  FM Cargill
My 08 6.7 has about 60K on it , have had the turbo replacement done, as well as all the flashes. Lately been smelling a burnt engine oil smell when I shut her down. No visible smoke when operating.

Anyone else experience this?

Check for engine oil on the turbo and that side of the engine. If oil is present, change your CCV filter if it hasn't been done.

Checked out the area next to the turbo, and both sides if the engine itself. Not seeing any oil either. What is the CCV filter change interval?

Factory says 65,000 but I would change it before that. Mine was FULL of oil at 66,000.

Seems more like the same smell you would get when you have oil getting in the cylinders and being burned. Might be just the regen smelling wierd I guess. Both times it was the most prevalent, think I was standing next to the box on the drivers side, not next to the engine compartment.
